‘I’m obviously very close’ – Spurs fans will love what Gareth Bale just said

Gareth Bale has admitted that Tottenham’s results are still the first he looks at every weekend as he retains a soft spot for the club.

In the summer of 2007, Bale moved from Southampton to Tottenham as a teenager. Over the following six years, he developed into one of the best players in the Premier League.

The winger was acquired by Real Madrid in the summer of 2013 for what was then a World Cup record fee of £85 million (BBC Sport). While at the Santiago Bernabeu, he won three La Liga championships and five Champions League crowns.

The 2020–21 season saw Bale make an emotional loan return to Tottenham, and although not being a regular starter under Jose Mourinho, he nevertheless finished the year with 16 goals across all competitions (Transfermarkt).

Gareth Bale still keeps an eye on Tottenham Hotspur

After the World Cup last year, the 33-year-old announced his retirement from professional football. Since then, he has spoken about his love for Spurs, confessing in an interview with The Evening Standard last month that he is pleased to see that the Lilywhites have regained their “style” under Ange Postecoglou.

Bale has since revealed to Sky Sports News (06/10) which outcomes he currently prioritizes: “I generally watch Tottenham a lot. Obviously, I’m quite near.

“In terms of the top level, I felt like I truly made my mark in the professional game. I constantly search for Tottenham. There, I have a lot of close pals.

It is a terrible shame that Bale’s reunion with Spurs was marred by Jose Mourinho and the absence of spectators at the game because of Covid. It’s encouraging to observe that the winger still cares about the team despite his or her experience.
